My new favorite strings
March 3, 2021
I bought these for my steel-bodied resonator, which I play with a slide. They've got just the right tone for me-- just a little metallic, but just enough to get the most out of the resonator. I recommend these!

Hear the Guitar, Not the Strings
September 16, 2020
I've been playing guitar for more than 60 years. I am a long-time fan of D'Addario strings for their tone, consistency, and reliability. I used EJ17s for years, switched to EXP17s when they came out, switched to XTs, and now am trying the Nickel Bronze strings. I used to like brightness, but now enjoy a more mellow tone. I've also switched to heavier picks (my current favorites are Blue Chip TPR 35s and V-Picks Medium Round Ultra Lights). Nickel Bronze strings have a lovely, natural sound that is very organic (less string sound and more guitar). I'm now trying the Nickel Bronze Balanced Tension mediums (13.5 to 56) and I love them. I don't so much notice the balanced tension as much as I notice how the strings and guitar sound. The sound is very balanced and what I hear is the guitar, not the strings. I play dreadnaughts and am used to a heavier bottom, but these strings even things out and make the sound more balanced and enjoyable. So now I hear the wood, not the strings. It is a very different and noticeable difference that I really like.
ProsBalance. I hear the guitar and the wood more and the strings less.
